Salary Report: How Much Do ‘The Real Housewives Of Atlanta’ Make!

Posted on Jan 16 2017 - 4:41pm by Dani-K

The truth is out!

Bravo Tv’s Real Housewives franchise began in 2006 and has grown into big business. The shows have made some housewives “rich bitches” overnight.

This explains how the ladies of The Real Housewives of Atlanta can afford those luxurious homes we see featured on the reality series. Well, now we know — their salaries have been leaked by Radar Online and the Season 9 cast salaries are “shocking!”

1.. Kandi Burruss 

Highest paid (now that NeNe’s gone) at $1.8 million

2..Kenya Moore 

Bringing home the bacon at $1.4 million 

3..Phaedra Parks 

For some reason was paid $1.3 million (for her self-serving storyline)

4..Cynthia Bailey 

Fourth highest at $1.2 million (Peter received only $20K)

5..Sheree Whitfield 

Second lowest income at $800,000 (most of it went to Chateau Sheree, no doubt)

6..Porsha Williams 

Received the lowest amount $700,000 (WTF?) for her manufactured drama

Tell us what you think about the RHOA salaries. Are you shocked Porsha is the lowest paid? Or are you more surprised that Kandi is the highest?

    I hope your report is grossly inflated………..it’s making me sick to think those stupids haul in THAT much cash………mostly for no brains, lies, and/or bad English.

    Wish I were a fly on the wall when NeNe reads this!

    • I believe it to be true just based on the price tags of their new homes. Cynthia just bought a lake house for $950,000, Phaedra bought a new home for $1.2 million and Porsha bought one for $1.3 million. You have to have hefty salaries to get approved for those home loans.

      • Sunflower

        … and they are “single” women.

  • MidwestMiddie

    They should all be fired and newbies hired and paid much less money.

    • Marsbars09

      Hi MM! I will say that these women are awfully boring for the amount of money they get paid.

      • Why is this happening to us?

        Hi Mars!
        I would have to agree….I don’t think any HW is worth the amount of money these women are making.

  • Marsbars09

    Wow! I never realized these women were earning serious bank. No wonder why they choose to stay on a reality TV show which makes fools out of them and humiliates their families in the process. Half of these women would be in the poorhouse if it weren’t for RHOA.

  • Sunflower

    Dani-K…
    You keep on rolling the RHOA carpet.
    I am taking selfies right now…
    Flash… Flash… Flash…

    • The Champ

      😆😆

  • The Champ

    I hate to say it, but we already called it. I’ve always known Poorsha was the lowest paid, due to her immaturity. Kandi is a certified Boss. Kenya, love her, hate her, but can’t stop talking about her. As it goes, most popular to less likely to have a brain. I guess ppl can stop calling some broke now. Rhoa is the highest rated on bravo’s franchise, they are worth more. Sherain’t and Poorsha have liens on their homes, due to outstanding debts. I Googled it!

    • Sunflower

      Did you really expect Porsha to get paid more… after her underground railroad remark??
      That was some real ignorant shz!

      • The Champ

        All of the stunts she’s pulled over the years. She deserves less. You can’t go around fighting w/o repercussions. They should have let her go or work for no pay. She’s too much of a liability.

        • Sunflower

          They’re just keeping her for that “dumb blonde” effect.
          In her case… naked hair… naked brain…!!!

          • The Champ

            Right. A fool she is 😩

        • Marsbars09

          I truly believe Porsha is always one step from being fired. It’s like the cast and producers are waiting for her to f*ck up.

          • The Champ

            I know she is the biggest liability. Her friend Jami has been hush, I bet bravo paid her a pretty penny. She was not under contract and is able to sue. Hush money 😶

      • girlie1

        That will no doubt go down in HW history! How many seasons ago was that and we still remember it and talk about the stupidest remark ever made 😂

        • Sunflower

          NO DOUBT…
          Second Runner-up = 265 days a year!!
          …. and there is a 3rd one…
          See if you remember the 3rd…???
          LOL..

      • Marsbars09

        LOL! You wouldn’t imagine such ignorant sh*t coming out of Porsha’s mouth knowing that her grandfather was an icon in the civil rights movement.

    • Why is this happening to us?

      What I don’t get is why they would have liens and debts when they are making pretty decent money. They are clearly living WAY above their means and need to go live in a house they can actually afford.

      • The Champ

        Poorsha owned a daycare and a there was an incident where a baby died. The daycare was closed and she didn’t pay off the loan. And if I’m not mistaken the patents sued her. I found this via Google. Don’t quote me, but it’s close.

        • Why is this happening to us?

          Omg! I didn’t know that! That’s terrible 😢
          I would think if she were sued, it wouldn’t be personal, but would go through her insurance (if it were a legitimate day care). She might owe on loans, but then why is she buying homes for over a million dollars if she doesn’t have the funds to back it up? These women need to start living within their means because the Bravo checks aren’t going to be around forever and they won’t be able to afford those homes if they have no money coming in. The taxes, living expenses and the upkeep alone is probably a small fortune, even if the home is already paid off.

          • The Champ

            Why does Poorsha do the dumb sh*t she does? Who knows? We may never know. The story is out there, just Google PW has liens on her new home 2016 ☺

          • Why is this happening to us?

            Oh snap! The liens are on the new home already? Lmao. That was quick! Didn’t she just buy it?
            I’ll check it out…ty!

          • The Champ

            I was talking about her new home the whole time 😁😁

          • Why is this happening to us?

            Ohhhh….I didn’t know! lol
            Actually, now that you mention it, I don’t think she ever owned any of her other homes. I think they were all rentals.

          • The Champ

            Yes, this is her first non rental home 🙂

          • Marsbars09

            Hi Champ! Porsha owned a townhouse before she married Kordell.

          • The Champ

            Oh ok, Thanks Mars ☺ I never knew she owned a townhouse, her new home has a lien on it.

          • Marsbars09

            I know. I don’t know how Porsha was able to purchase a million dollar home with such a huge lien against it.

          • The Champ

            She’s Poorsha, they didn’t hit her with the lien until after the purchase. I read she would not respond to any correspondence regarding the outstanding debt. That’s when they started to garnish her wages. It’s out there on Google, if you care to read it ☺

          • Marsbars09

            Girl, these women are crazy. They are so desperate to perpetrate a lifestyle we know they can’t afford. They certainly aren’t fooling me.

          • The Champ

            I’m glad Kenya saved her coins and is still getting royalties from her sitcom days. She was smart to wait and have kids, she’s only responsible for her own azz. Smart thinking on her part.

          • Marsbars09

            Porsha used to own a townhouse before she married Kordell. Porsha said Kordell made her sell the townhouse before or right after they married.

          • Why is this happening to us?

            Oh ok…I wasn’t sure if she went from living with her parents to living with Kordell. Didn’t know she had her own place in between.

          • Bobbi

            That condo was reportedly foreclosed on before they married for nonpayment and Porsha was way behind on her HO fees – close to $20,000 that I think Kordell helped her pay. Kordell said that was the reason he refused to put Porsha’s name on the home when they got married.

          • Marsbars09

            Oh. OK.

          • Marsbars09

            I’ve also wondered if these women invest their earnings. As you’ve stated, the housewives franchise will not last forever.

          • Why is this happening to us?

            At least if they buy their home outright, they will have a nice little nest egg and if they need money in the future, they could always sell. I know I would be looking to invest if I were them.

          • Bobbi

            I know Kenya has always said she was investing since her first season on Rhoa.

          • Marsbars09

            That’s smart of her to do.

          • Bobbi

            I agree.

    • Bobbi

      Ahahahaha. If this is true, Now we know why a certain two HW’s stay doing the most. The two at the bottom are doing double work for half the pay. Lmao. Dumb @sses.

      • The Champ

        It sounds about right to me. Kandi being the highest based on status. Kenya based on popularity, not to be confused with likes 😀😀

        • Bobbi

          Yeah I don’t know. These “leaked” salaries have not been true before but these are believable at least. Hail, Sheree’s is spent already on Neverland and no wonder Porsha is always in swing mode. She came on same season as Kenya but is making half of what she makes. You KNOW she hates life. Lol.

          • The Champ

            Yeah, she’s big mad. She’s out here trying to produce a baby with no father and bought a house while in debt. She’s working overtime on next seasons SL, her life depends on it.

          • Bobbi

            Porsha started a new fitness line called The Dump or some remedial bs name. I mean who is this chile manager-they can’t all be this stupid can they? This is how you know that plastic hair and lingerie business is at a standstill. She’s still throwing chit against the wall.

          • The Champ

            I did hear her mention it on wwhl, it is a pill for cleaning, I think. I wasn’t really paying attention. The Dump though, that’s a sh*tty name, literally 💩 Maybe we can convince on of her poster fans to do a b4 and after pic 😁😁

          • Bobbi

            Right. I’m just saying the marketing is chitty. Literally and figuratively. 😬

          • The Champ

            😂😂😂 Oh sh*t Bobbi, I wonder if her proceeds are down the drain 💩💩🚽

          • Bobbi

            Nope. I think she’s constipated. 😳Those proceeds are stuck, just like they are on that plastic hair and lingerie. 😂😂

          • The Champ

            😁😁😁 Girl, draino couldn’t unclog those pipes 💩💩💩

          • Bobbi

            Hahahaha. Nope sure couldn’t. When Rhoa ends this heffa is going to be toast with a side of jam.

          • The Champ

            😂😂😂

  • shayvoe

    I believe Porsha makes more than Sheree.

  • Sunflower

    Salaries used to be a secret… not anymore, especially not in the Entertainment Industry.
    No wonder Marlo is sooooo thirsty!

    • The Champ

      She can’t even get a half a peach 🍑 😀😀

      • Sunflower

        … or the PIT…
        LOL

        • The Champ

          Nope 😌😁😁

        • Why is this happening to us?

          Haha! Good one! 😂😂

      • BooBooBaby

        Hahhaha! Hahahaha! Omg! Omg! That was too funny! 😉

  • Why is this happening to us?

    What?!
    These women do no to deserve to make that kind of money for this show, especially the way this season is going. Now that we know they are making close to or more than $1 million shows they are some cheap bitches with the amounts they dontated to Phaedra’s charity! I also can’t believe Kandi is making almost $2 million! Is she the highest paid HW ever?

    • The Champ

      Probably, they deserve more considering the ratings. If it wasn’t for them we wouldn’t be here discussing rhoa. Bravo is cheap and needs to pay what’s owed.

      • Why is this happening to us?

        You think they deserve more? I think they are being paid pretty well considering these women aren’t really doing hard work. It can’t be too hard to have to go on an all expense paid group trip to an exotic location, a few free dinners, and some outings with the ladies each season. Now I know why they are airing out their dirty laundry for the world to see…lol. I might do it too for over $1 million! …and I would do even more than that for closer to $2 million! Lol 🤣
        I wonder if they make more than the BH ladies. I think they are probably the highest paid HW’s since their ratings are usually the highest.

        • The Champ

          I’m not for sure, but BH ratings are lower than rhoa. If they bring in the most money to the franchise they should be paid according to that.

          • Why is this happening to us?

            I think you’re right. I’m pretty sure ATL is the most popular and has the best ratings. There was a time when NJ was pretty close, but that ship sailed a long time ago. Now ATL’s ratings are way higher than any of the others. Most of the others only average 1-1.5 million viewers. Certainly not a huge success. I think ATL averages around 3 mil.

        • BetteDavisEyez1

          I wonder what the OG Vicki earns if Kandi makes that much.

          • Why is this happening to us?

            And LVP…
            I remember her saying she got very little, but since they need her for the show, I’m thinking they are paying her a pretty penny these last 2 seasons, especially after she threatened to quit.

  • Bobbi

    Not sure if we can trust the sources but if true It’s no mystery that the two slowest are the least paid.
    Porsha should throw in the towel. She is making less than what the rest of the girls were making 5 seasons ago.

    • The Champ

      We already knew that much. Why would they pay her top dollar when she is a liability and doesn’t have any substance. Hey Bobbi, do you remember why Poorsha as a lien on her new home? I Googled it a while ago, but don’t remember full details? ☺

      • Bobbi

        Lol. Yep she barely has a job so we know she’s not getting paid what everyone else is getting. She’s even getting less than Sheree’s sorry @ss after a 5 year hiatus.
        Porsha and her Daycare Center were sued by the bank one month after signing the papers for her new home for default on a loan. The article said Porsha and her mother tried to dispute it but were unsuccessful The bank tried to give them an opportunity to settle the debt but they defaulted of course. The Bank tried to serve them 3 times and they kept dodging – they even tried to serve her at DN. They ended up having to put the notice in the paper. But they ended up getting a judgement. Ghetto. They showed the court docs online that shows a default judgement and I think the lien on her new home. But this is not Porsha’s first rodeo. Porsha has liens, judgements and wage garnishments posted all over the internet.

        • Marsbars09

          I’d be stressed the f*ck out if I had millions of dollars of liens over my head. I don’t see how these people do it.

          • Bobbi

            Right? What a way to live. And these idiots are walking around smiling and highfiving like they don’t have a care in the world. You can tell who the biggest idiots are and have been on this show. ~~Cough~~Porsha, Sheree,~cough~Nene.

          • Marsbars09

            LOL!

        • The Champ

          Thank you Bobbi, I knew you knew more about it than I did. I was thinking maybe the parents also sued her too. But you’re right about everything you stated, on point. Thanks girl ☺

          • Bobbi

            YW, Champ. You’re still correct though. There was also a lawsuit on behalf of the child who died on his first day at her daycare. The parents were granted a $5miil + judgement but, I think the insurance paid that.

          • The Champ

            Oh ok, she probably had a heck of a deductible. God bless the family 🙏 Such a tragedy.

          • Bobbi

            Right.

          • Why is this happening to us?

            Omg. Do you know how the baby died? Was it from natural causes or due to an accident/negligence?

          • Bobbi

            The charge was that the daycare was understaffed and the kid was left alone while the staff went to lunch. The daycare won the criminal case but apparently lost the civil case.

          • Why is this happening to us?

            Aww…that is so terrible. You hear stories like that all the time and unfortunately it keeps happening despite all these regulations that are put in place. I feel so bad for the poor parents. Thanks for letting me know! 🙂

          • Bobbi

            NP. Yes. Devastating, right? No amount of money can make up for that.

          • Why is this happening to us?

            Yes. Totally devastating. I can’t even imagine what that poor family is going through. You are absolutely right- there is no amount of money that can make up for it. So sad…and all due to something that could have easily been remedied. All they needed to do was hire more staff. Smh… This seems to be a trend with these places. We had a couple here have the same issues and it all comes down to funding and money.

          • BetteDavisEyez1

            Porsha owned the daycare & was not there when this incident accrued.
            Is that really something that should be discussed in a gossip blog?!? What does it have to do with anything?!? SMDH

          • Why is this happening to us?

            You’re right. It doesn’t have anything to do with the article or the price of tea in China. lol
            I never even heard anything like that happened.

          • BetteDavisEyez1

            It is certainly nothing to snark about on a gossip blog. The lengths ppl will go to just to dog out Porsha. All because she turned Raisin Face into a human Dust Mop. SMDH

          • BooBooBaby

            Omg! I didn’t know about that! Wow! I feel out of the Loop!
            Thanks for the juicy info!

        • Why is this happening to us?

          Wow. Crazy! Thanks for the tea!

          • Bobbi

            YW 🙂

  • Sugar in my tank

    Hunty these women earn every single dime. Why in the hell should Bravo get to exploit them for nothing? If they are getting paid this, Bravo is raking in 15 times this amount. How many of you go to work every day and complain you don’t get paid enough or what you’re worth. Capitalism is a b*tch. It’s not about their worth but their earning potential. Business all day never personal.

    • The Champ

      Thank you Sugar, now we’re talking. The deserve every bit of it, down to the last cent.

      • Sugar in my tank

        See I come here to chat it up and give my perspective but see I don’t play when it comes to money. This franchise racks up alot of dough for this network and they should be compensated accordingly. Income equality is something that I champion for women and I don’t have to like them all to believe they should get paid..we watch, the sponsors pay, the ratings soar…

        • The Champ

          Bravo Sugar 👏👏👏👏 I’m with you, these women are worth every dollar and more. We have always spoke about rhoa being the highest rated. Now we see they know their worth, kudos to them.

          • Bobbi

            I think so too Champ. Sugar’s right-can you imagine what the network and production are making?

          • The Champ

            Yes. I bet it’s a lot more than we could think of. Didn’t the rhoa camera crew sue bravo?

          • Bobbi

            I think the production crew, True Entertainment was sued by the lower level crew.

          • The Champ

            Oh ok, I knew someone got sued over wages.

    • Bobbi

      I totally agree. Why should Bravo and production make all the money? As we see these women risk a lot to do what they do; Reputation and their safety included. If anything they are probably underpaid.

  • the underground train

    I refuse to believe Cynthia gets paid that much to be boring!

    • Marsbars09

      Hi underground! I can’t believe any of these ladies receive the salary that is listed.

      • the underground train

        Hey love. Seriously what is Cynthia bringing to the show to justify this payment? At least Sheree is constantly shit stirring to earn her paycheck.

        • Marsbars09

          LOL! Cynthia has been a non MF factor for most of her tenure on the show. If Bravo decided not to show her anymore I swear I would not notice, that’s how boring she is.

          • BetteDavisEyez1

            So much for Peter’s claim that he asked for nothing out of Cynthia’s Bravo pay. $20k?!? On what planet does that carpetbagger deserve that?!?

      • Why is this happening to us?

        I agree, Mars….it’s not like they are curing cancer or anything…

        • Marsbars09

          Agreed. However, some posters feel the women are deserving of their salaries due to the high ratings the show generates.

          • Why is this happening to us?

            I get that. I just don’t agree with anyone making that kind of money for appearing on a reality show. I feel the same way about professional athletes earning millions of dollars per year for throwing a ball around. I think teachers, doctors, first responders, etc. deserve more money… not these women (or any HW!). Such is life!

          • Marsbars09

            ITA.

        • BetteDavisEyez1

          No one believed it when it was Nene that was reported to make over a million… oh but now it’s all true. LMAO!!

          • Why is this happening to us?

            Haha! Idk if it’s true or not, but it’s pretty crazy to think these heifers are making that kind of money if it is true…

  • TartLemon

    In a club by myself, I see, but Porsha is very interesting to me. She’s grown considerably since first being introduced. There’s been some very bumpy roads like the anger issue, but she seems to be ironing those out. The idiocy about things like underground railroad, Porsha has accepted, learned and moved forward. On Celebrity Apprentice, she really has impressed me. I totally expected the ignorant, dumb thing. Seeing her in a different light, now.

    Kandi is the one who has changed for the worst. Taking control and speaking her mind has become something loud and bitter. Not enticing.

    • Marsbars09

      I agree Porsha presents herself a little better on CA than RHOA. I am impressed with her performance on CA.
      I also agree Kandi has changed for the worse. Her being depicted as the “head or center peach” has not endeared me to her.

    • shayvoe

      You are not by yourself, becuase I feel the same way about Porsha…she has really impressed me on CA, and the woman is definitely not a dummy. She is well spoken and professional.

      • AnEnigmaWrappedIn$nark

        ITA … WTF is up with that? Where did this Po’Shit come from? To me, it just cooberated what I’ve been saying about this franchise forever; that these women are in on the joke and have no problem propagating their respective stereotypes. In Porsha’s case, the shallow materialistic ditz.

    • BetteDavisEyez1

      There are more of us than you think. Porsha has a target on her back because she stood up to the resident buffoon.

  • Kjibbers

    Dumb assss working for pennies. These shows generate MILLIONS of dollars.

  • TartLemon

    O/T sort of, but sometimes I wish there were subtitles to explain the slang these women use. What they are doing is hard to keep up with because I don’t quite know the context of the idioms.

    • Marsbars09

      I’m sorry to say, but I think most of the cast is uneducated, hence the nonsensical slang they use.

      • The Champ

        That’s not true. Some of them are intelligent and business saavy. Slang words are just terms we use for fun. Wow!

        • Sunflower

          Stereotypical nonsense because its RHOA.

          • The Champ

            Most of the stereotyping is coming from the posters. Why are ppl so upset they are getting paid top dollar? These women deserve more if you ask me. We wouldn’t be discussing it, if we were not entertained. There’s a reason why they have the highest ratings in the network.

          • Sunflower

            That’s exactly what I meant.
            We still live in a Society where it is perfectly normal for one socio-economic group to be financially better off.
            Words like slang are being thrown around to diminish the worth of earnings of RHOA castmembers.
            Happy MLK Day…!!!!

          • The Champ

            Thank you sis, Happy MLK to you as well. This is some of the exact things he fought against. You would like to think ppl would know better. I have seen some very offensive remarks regarding a certain cast. But some of it I just can’t overlook. Ppl spew so much hate, they don’t even make any sense after awhile. I have been using slang for a long time, that doesn’t make me any different from the next person. Some ppl need to check their ignorance at the door. Slang is not to be confused with being uneducated. I have heard a few rhoa cast members mispronounce words, but that’s not the same as slang.

          • Sunflower

            There is an Internet culture on the move of mean cliques who want to control several different blogs.
            I like to mix it up and interact with everybody… whether we agree or disagree.
            Shouldn’t this be possible in the 21st century..?
            Being persistently verbally abusive or downright mean… can also easily be attributed to a lack of class or not having a certain sophistication going through life.
            You say dustmop…. I say criminal, based on storylines or background of castmembers.
            No hard feelings…. we can still all get along and make the blogs fun, have great camaderie while agreeing or disagreeing.

          • The Champ

            So true, but it’s the undertones that I’m talking about. We can always agree to disagree, but be conscious of our wordings. I grew up in an Era where we speak our minds and our truths. I understand your approach as well. I think we should all be considerate of each other’s differences, instead of trying to belittle a group of ppl for their use of slang words, etc. It’s clear to me that many ppl hate rhoa for what ever reasons. But, the ratings tell a different story. Ppl try to hide behind their words to push a certain agenda. I got enough sense to know better. It’s bigger than a difference of opinion.

          • Sunflower

            Hi Champ… on a rainy Tuesday Evening.
            I noticed that my response post to you from last night has been in moderation, because of one word.
            The word is the opposite of heaven.
            LOL…

          • The Champ

            Hi Sunflower, I’ve been busy the last few days. No worries, I always appreciate your positive outlooks. I’m all for peace and harmony, but sometimes we have to speak out against negativity. Thank you for always keeping and opened mind and speaking the TRUTH ☺

          • Sunflower

            Thanks dear…
            My mom always told me that…
            “Kindness is always fashionable”.
            🙂

          • The Champ

            You’re welcome, your mom knows well ☺

          • Bobbi

            Agreed. Your description can be applied to the HW’s as well -lack of sophistication and class because of the way they treat one another. Lack of education is the least of some of these ladies problems. To add,they all use slang -the only difference is some of it is culturally exclusive just as they all misprononce and use wrong words. Some of the criticism is deserved on rhoa but unfortunately you only see those criticisms regarding that franchise when they are all guilty. Unfortunately, many place value and intelligence on these HW’s based on their perceived wealth and what part of the country these ladies live in.

          • Sunflower

            ^^^^1000…
            Your further description is even clearer than mine.
            Your last paragraph perfectly sums it up!
            Always a pleasure to read your posts.

          • Bobbi

            Thanks Sunflower. You were more than clear-your comment inspired me to tag on. Always a pleasure to read your posts as well.

          • BetteDavisEyez1

            Great post. We don’t all have to agree to get along or just be respectful.

          • Sunflower

            Especially since the bloggers here are doing a great job, recapping all the drama and delivering to us..within a few minutes… hours… after the shows.

          • BetteDavisEyez1

            This is true. I enjoy posting on this site. A lot of posts make me literally LOL!!
            Your last sentence was everything by the way. Well done.👏👏👏

          • Bobbi

            Truth. Slang is not synonymous with education or lack thereof….and I’ve heard ladies mispronounce words on ALL of the HW’s franchises.

          • The Champ

            Thank you Bobbi, anyone who is trying to associate slang with a lack of education sounds ignorant. As responsible adults we should be knowledgeable about a subject before we speak on it. I’m sure many of the HW’s have misspoken words before and used them out of context. Like you said, all the franchises are guilty of it.

          • Bobbi

            They most definitely all are guilty. I am a witness to that. From Miami to California.

          • The Champ

            I’m sure they are, I don’t doubt it. This topic has taken on a new form in another direction. Rhoa remains #1 in ratings, slang and errrythang 😎

          • Bobbi

            Slang makes the world more colorful and interesting. Google sure is my dang friend. I grew up reading with a dictionary within reach. I’m never going to read or hear something I don’t understand. And you can take that to the biznai. 🤑😂😳

          • The Champ

            😂😂😂😂 Foshizzle, I’m with you Bobbi! I love to learn and research, even b4 Google. It makes life easier and more fulfilling. I would never speak freely about things I’m not knowledgeable about. I read to soak up knowledge and also for fun. When it doubt, Google it out 🙌

          • Bobbi

            😂😂 I could go on forever mynizzle but I’m going to stop right here. Bobbi out. 🎙🖐🏽 (In my President Obama voice) 😂😂😭😭😭💀💀

          • The Champ

            😂😂😂😂Lmfao, Bobbi yous a fool.

          • Bobbi

            😂😂😂😂. Your fault.

            We can’t help but encourage each other 🙄🙄😂😂

            😜🤓😂 we have 🚫❄️😂. Laughter is the spice of life. Keep it coming.

          • The Champ

            Ditto 😂😂😂😂

          • Trippinhhard

            All of the Housewives use slang words, it’s just different because they are BLACK.. Now that’s just a fact, I don’t watch any of them anymore but they all use different slang words, I’ve had to ask what they saying to the other person..
            I’m white and they nitpick every word they say.. I use giveexamples from all the shows using slang words.. Oh and while we’re talking about slang words that a code for black people.. Their show is watched by white men and women..My ex does computer works for all the major plants here after hours, in the break room they were and be watching to see what Nene was going to be saying this week, he asked me about the show. I told him what do you think Sydney and I are watching in the bedroom.l They couldn’t get the ratings they have by just Black people watching the show, it has to be whites and other nationalities watching to get triple of some of the HWS and definitely double if ALL the Housewives show.. Just some truthful fact..
            It’s no different than Kim the whorer having her own show and people watching it, but if that was a Black woman walking around thanking.. I Big Poppa for all the things she was getting.l She would be called a whorer and NEVER given a show of her own, period point blank.. I asked anyone to challenge that statement.. It wouldn’t happen the other way around. I’m just a straight shooter and gave no favorite p, I just tell my truth and my opinion from decades of experience and Being the only Senior Executive for the company I retired from at the tender age if 40…with full benefits, theybshit I saw done and the games they played were disgusting, but if you can get pass my mother those SOB wasn’t shit.. I took it all with a smile on my face..

          • Bobbi

            Sadly people place value on the HW’s based on what they perceive them to already have – not on contribution and public interest. You would not have seen some of these comments if names such as LVP, Lisa Rinna or Heather Dubrow’s names were used in ithe place of this cast.
            The mispronouncing of words and usage of words totally inappropriate for its intent point more to someone’s lack of education and housewives on EVERY franchise are guilty of this -embarrassingly so -but you never see anyone attribute this to their lack of education. Smh

          • The Champ

            Yes Bobbi, this is the main reason I mentioned it. Rhoa gets a lot of flack and are unfairly judged. Ppl are too comfortable saying the wrong things. I may snark and make fun of the cast, but I’m speaking on behalf of the character’s I see. Ppl are targeting these women and making it personal. I can tell by the tone, it’s out of hand.

          • Bobbi

            ITA.

          • Bobbi

            To add, so what you don’t understand? No one understood what giving the cold shoulder, pass the buck or she bailed on you meant either until they did LoL! Really though, none of those idioms mean what we learned in English class. You don’t know until you know so look it up like you said. Big deal. Some people actually think it makes them seem more sophisticated to not know. Hahaha Chile, come here…. I’ve got a seat just for you. Lmao

          • The Champ

            Amen to that Bobbi! The world is full of doubters and naysayers. Many ppl on this blog use slang. Benny Hill uses it all the time with his nasty azz😊 It’s one thing to not understand, but another to criticize. You can research pretty much any and everything these days. Google is available 24/7, 365 days a year. It’s ignorant to call ppl stupid bcuz they differ from your norm. Knowledge is power. It’s our responsibility to do our own research. When we know better, we do better.

          • Bobbi

            Omg @ Benny Hill! Where did you dig him up from? Lmao! My brother used to watch this show and fall in the floor laughing. All I could do is shake my head. He was too stupid for words. 😂There is a phrase he used to say all the time and it’s killing me because I can’t think of it.
            Girl, I think read an article about him once that when he died his tombstone said, “I told you I was ill”. He was a straight fool and that’s exactly what he wanted you to think. 😂😂

          • The Champ

            Girl yes, Benny Hills freak # was through the roof. My g’pa used to watch it on Friday nights when we were young. We used to get on his nerves running back and forth in front of the TV. I was curious to know what was so funny about the show. Benny was a perv and he was cool with it. Girl, remember that stupid azz music? I’ll never forget Benny flashing ppl and looking under womens skirts. RIP Benny 🙏 He was a real nutty buddy 😁😁😁

          • Bobbi

            Yesss. Lmao @ your grandad- my brother was only in his early 20’s and he loved it. I thought he was disgusting. Hahaha. There were moments I didn’t get the humor but I wanted to get it because my brother was laughing so hard. Lmao! I was really quiet though or my mom would have sent me to bed. It was on really late if I can remember correctly. I’ll never forget him either running around on fast forward. Perv is right. It was dang near pornography.😂😂

          • The Champ

            😁😁😁 Benny was challenged. Running around with that trench coat on. He had the creepiest grin on his face and those eyes. I miss my g’pa 😇, he was such a fun loving man. So many good memories, funny ones too 😅😅😅

          • Bobbi

            I feel you. I can’t tell you how many hours around our dinner table is dedicated to my g’pa when I am home. The best memories ever. He gave everyone a new, creative but fitting name and said and did the most comical things. The day wasn’t right until you got that hug and conversation when he was in the room.

          • The Champ

            That warms my heart Bobbi, you are lucky. He sounds like a wonderful man. I really wish my g’pa would have lived longer, I miss his words of wisdom the most. He brought so much joy to our family too. My g’ma was never the same after his passing, she had a heavy heart. Thank you for sharing, it gave me a beautiful visual 🤗

          • The Champ

            Girl, you can’t make me understand it 😀

          • Marsbars09

            Well I hope you understand my revised comment. 🙂

          • Marsbars09

            SF, I’m sorry you misinterpreted my comment. If you look above I clarified it. And you should know from our correspondence and my posts my intention is never to be stereotypical.

          • BooBooBaby

            I don’t see how it was Stereotypical…..that person didn’t say anything about race. Not everything is about race!

            When any of the Housewives from ANY of the franchises sound terribly uneducated, to me, is when they get Nasty/Loud/Mean with each other.
            And that goes for ALL races of the women on ALL of the Shows!

        • Marsbars09

          Champ, I admit I was “reaching” with my comment. I think half of the women are ignorant/uneducated regardless of whether they use slang.
          And girl you should know by now I have no problem with slang.

          • The Champ

            I appreciate you clarifying your statement. I now have a better understanding of what you mean.

          • Marsbars09

            Thank you.
            I read your correspondence with Sunflower below. Were you referring to me when talking about posters stereotyping the women? If so, that was not my intention at all.

          • The Champ

            No problem, it was not just about you, but more so about certain comments made about the rhoa franchise. I can’t speak about any others, but rhoa gets a lot of hate. I speak to the women’s characters and throw in a few jabs here and there. I’ve never tried to belittle anyone for their culture. That’s where the line is drawn. We should all as a whole be careful not to offend one another with our language . Stereotyping in itself is touchy subject. Let’s be more conscious of our treatment of one another. Maybe I can set the tone.

          • Marsbars09

            Very well said. I always try to be respectful and conscientious of other posters because that is the way I expect to be treated.

          • The Champ

            Thank you Mars, I’m glad you understand. I always enjoy your company ☺

          • Marsbars09

            🙂

          • BooBooBaby

            I personally didn’t take any of your posts that way! I understood exactly what you meant…..it doesn’t always have to do with someones race!

            It is hard to take Any of these Housewives seriously….especially when they get Nasty with each other! That’s when they sound uneducated!

          • Marsbars09

            Thanks for understanding Boo.

          • The Champ

            Thank you kindly Boobo, this wasn’t an argument, I was voicing my opinion, which is valid to me. Me and Mars had a discussion and we respectfully moved on. Everytime I make a comment or an observation somebody comes along and tries to discredit my point of view . I’m happy that you understand on your own behalf. Let’s agree to disagree to our differences of opinion. I’ve been around long enough and I have seen plenty ignorance spewed up and down these blogs. I’m only speaking about rhoa, not the others. Hope you understand where I’m coming from, just my opinion.

        • Bobbi

          Thank you!! I was just getting
          ready to say Slang has always been around and every generation has used it. Many older people use slang even when they don’t realize it because those words are now more mainstream. For instance, cool, cold shoulder, for real, bail-I could go on forever and that’s just American slang. Slang is cultural and global. It’s funny how it is only associated with education or lack thereof when certain cultures use it.

          The main difference between slang used now and back in the day when the terms cool and groovy were used, is Social Media. Before, slang was mostly generational and culturally exclusive because people simply became out of touch after a certain age and cultures didn’t come together as much respectively. Back in the day slang was mostly spread through lyrics and because music was also quite generational/culturally exclusive people usually were restricted to the slang of their age/cultural group but that has changed with social media. It’s definitely still more prevalently used by the youth but anyone who moderately uses social media is exposed. That stated, modern day slang is now being used by older generations and every culture uses it and on all social levels -some slang is just more appropriated than others.
          I’ve seen it used even in mainstream media. Just recently I heard a slightly older than middle aged pundit use the term “pop off” and he was not the stereotype you would normally attach to that idiom.

          I don’t get all slang- no one does over 30 but I agree it is fun and I see no problem with it as long as you have a strong foundation and are able to cut it off when needed. These housewives are not using slang to the degree it is a problem to understand what they are saying and any one saying they don’t get it aren’t getting out much.

          • The Champ

            Most of the world uses slang, in many different cultures and languages. It’s ok if one doesn’t understand it or like it, it may not be for them. But to downright label a group of ppl for using it is the very definition of stereotyping. This day and age slang is considered cool, it’s not frowned upon as much. Many of us use it to communicate through conversations, text and writings. It’s all in fun! Obama used it and ppl joked about it, it was not taken seriously. Ppl need to lighten up and get with the times. If you don’t understand it, Google is always your friend.

          • Bobbi

            But that’s just it. Everyone uses slang. Maybe not the same one you use but they use it.

          • The Champ

            So true, slang is universal.

      • BooBooBaby

        Yessss! You Nailed it! It definitely shows!

      • Elizabeth Fisher

        Kandi is the worst. She always sounds like she is talking with a mouthful of marbles.

    • The Champ

      For instance, maybe I can help 😆

    • AnEnigmaWrappedIn$nark

      Oh gurl, I’ve been saying for years that this one needs Honey Boo Boo captioning! Especially when it comes to Kandi and the ol’ Lady Gang.

      • Why is this happening to us?

        I actually watch all my shows with subtitles because I can’t always hear or understand what they are saying. It makes a huge difference! lol. Sometimes you even catch things they mutter under their breath, which you normally wouldn’t hear on your own. Try it!
        I started using them because I live in an apartment and am often up watching tv really late and can’t have the tv too loud. Since I started watching with subtitles, I can’t watch without…lol. I think you get more out of the show that way.
        I think some of it also has to do with the fact that this is a Southern show and they tend to use lots of phrases and lingo that are commonly used in the South. Southerners certainly have a very unique way with the English language…lol. It’s funny for me because I’m a NY’er and they use so many sayings that I’ve never even heard of!

        • AnEnigmaWrappedIn$nark

          Hey that’s a great idea … I am increasingly having to rewind and play back WTF these people have said, and it seems to be getting worse lately.

          • Why is this happening to us?

            Try it! After a while, you’ll start to like it…lol.
            The only annoying thing can be when they have a name or something on the bottom of the screen and then the subtitles sometimes get in the way, but I just rewind it to see if I missed anything.

  • Geraldine Johnson

    I feel Kenya should be paid more, but Kandi has been in the limelight longer. I can’t see paying Sheree that much . Sheree is messy and boring. Now I see why she dislike Kenya. Kenya makes more then her.

    • The Champ

      You make an excellent point Geraldine. Looks like Sherain’t ain’t the only one bothered. ☺

    • AnEnigmaWrappedIn$nark

      I don’t know what the hell SheCan’tPay is even doing on the show. I don’t find anything about her even remotely entertaining. She’s not even a fun bitch, she’s just a bitch.

  • Bryan

    They make this much yet some of them can’t pay their bills?

    • Trippinhhard

      When you live like the Joneses and dress by labels only and red bottom shoes.. it doesn’t matter how much you make, it’s how much you save, from my background..
      Kandi is the richest before the show and she fugal with her money, sometimes too much, but having a baby, did something good to her because she’s looking better and by the blogs, she’s not always asking about food.. She could buy and sell all of her costars and still have money left.. She also dressing better this season from the commercials I’ve seen. Happy New Years to you hadn’t seen you post here in a while or maybe I didn’t notice it.. Samra

      • Bryan

        Happy New Year to you

  • Trippinhhard

    Well I been said the should be paid double what any other housewife show makes.. There ratings are more than double than ANY of the HWS, that’s just a fact.. It’s about time they get the paid according to their ratings.. I see why Kandi is amping up this season, but she will never be the HBIC because she needs her team to attack others and Joyceless old ass showing out and off.. I wish someone this season on the reunion tell her ass off, like Nene did and Kandi didn’t like it, hut of course Nene said I said what I said and I’m not changing it.l if you don’t want your mother talked about keep her off the show.. Also keep her from acting a fool, trying to fight your assistant and etc.. Fhedra’s mother has been featured o the show and never said a word about her costars, Nene’s aunt was featured several times nota word about the other ladies atvall.. Sheree’s mother was featured once or twice andshesva Professor and wrote several book, no words at the other women.. Kenya’s Aunt who I really like has been on a lot,has never say a word about the other women at all, she even told Kenya once or twice to be the better person and own up to what you did.. But never one word about the other ladies..But Joyceless has skeletons her closet that she don’t want to come out…The Apple don’t fall to far from the tree..

  • AnEnigmaWrappedIn$nark

    These salaries are serious money (not to mention the money they’re making from their respective businesses) … yet Kenya can’t afford landscaping or ever baseboards. ShereeSheCan’tPay can’t write $1000 checks to journeymen (and is apparently about to be foreclosed on). Po’Shit lost her rental and is living in her mom’s spare bedroom. Cynthia was forced to sell her condo and then trumped up a story line about a “lake house” that she clearly can’t afford apparently never really intended on buying. Phaedra raises a stinking $7500 on an all day event with her entire cast and thinks her kid raising 20 bucks on homemade cookies is a big deal. Something is terribly awry here; either these salaries are completely inaccurate, or these heifas are complete and total morons with their finances. I’m guessing it’s a little of both.

    • TMonte

      “these heifas are complete and total morons with their finances” ….that’s freaking hilarious and probably very accurate!!

      • Authentic

        I immediately thought of Toya and Eugene on M2M, trying to finance a home themselves, loosing their$50,000 earnest money because they’re not that smart when all along they were dodging$176,000 to the IRS. Now, the problem is their POOR upbringing even though Toya has a degree in Business Admin and Eugene is a Dr. Give me a f’g break Teresa….I mean Toya. Morons is correct! Many educated viewers like the trash on HW’s too.

      • Lulu

        How are they morons. They have businesses. Kenya, Kandi and Marlo paid cash for forclosed property. Sherea finally finished construction in cash. This drama they create keeps money in their pockets

    • shayvoe

      Porsha did buy a new house, and was only living at ther Mom’s until she found one…she found one and now lives there. Cynthia did get her lake house, and has been living in it for a good 6 months. Phaedra also bought a new home. Can’t speak for Shebroke or Dust Mop Moore.

      • AnEnigmaWrappedIn$nark

        I like Cynthia so I’m happy for her. BTW, Shavy how do you know these things?

        • shayvoe

          LOL…There have been pics posted on line of Cynthia in her new lake house from her instagram. Pics of both Phaedra and Porsha’s new homes have also been posted on line. Phaedra’s new house was shown in a story on here just yesterday.

          • AnEnigmaWrappedIn$nark

            Ah … I don’t Instagram@, and I must have missed the piece on Frick and Frack’s new homes.

          • shayvoe

            I dont either, but the pics from Cynthia’s instagram in her lake house were posted on various gossip sites. I think here too.

  • BooBooBaby

    I stopped watching this Atlanta one awhile back!
    I think they are over paid for their BS Fake Drama!

    • AnEnigmaWrappedIn$nark

      How did you do it? Is there like some 10-step program which I can join?

  • WeCouldBeHeroes

    They get paid good but how do we know these figures are real.

    • Why is this happening to us?

      We don’t! Lol

  • BetteDavisEyez1

    These women deserve to be the highest paid in the franchise because the ratings are more than double the amount of any other show.
    Now, if only they could get new opening sequences every season… how long have they had the same opening & cast pic?!?
    They also go on the cheapest trips. What’s up with that?!? LOL!!

    • Authentic

      Bravo is wrong for sending them on the cheapest trips! So that leads me to wonder why? Is it Bravo or the cast that wants to go to cheap ass Mexico or Jamaica? I’m leaning towards the cast. Remember Marlo requesting all her BS in S. Africa and she’s not a regular? I don’t see these women wanting any alternate culture experiences. Everything is still new for them, except Portia. I think Portia honeymoon’d in Dubai. Others showed scared of Dubai, anything out of their element. This cast OK with traveling 45 mins to Freeport, Bahamas.

      • BetteDavisEyez1

        I think you are correct. Some ppl don’t like to go out of their comfort zone.

    Since Porsha is the most interesting, dresses the best, has the most boyfriends and the most changing story line every Season. I am very disappointed that she makes the least. Think about it, drop Porsha and what do you have left? (Yawn, I am so sleepy and bored). Give Porsha Sheree’s pay check, she adds nothing. Hire Marlowe, I think she would add a lot.

    They’re really underpaid. It’s the highest grossing series on the network. The cast of Friends used to get paid 1 million per episode.
